Research Update: Lily's research on Chinese herbal medicine and polycystic ovary syndrome now published in BMJ Open

Thank you to all involved in the ORCHID research study. I set up this research study in January 2013 as part of my PhD research to explore the effects of Chinese herbal medicine for polycystic ovary syndrome. A number of patients, members of the public and practitioners were invited to refer people onto the research study and I’m pleased to report that we had an enthusiastic response!

I remain grateful to all who were involved in referring patients, emailing, tweeting, blogging, handing out flyers, printing out A4 signs for their local GP and CAM clinics and health food stores.

The final publication has now been published in the BMJ Open and is accessible via the link below:

Take a fresh approach to growing your family.

Read about the experiences that our patients have had with receiving Acupuncture and herbal medicine for IVF support, regulating periods and Polycistic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).

"I was trying to conceive and had unexplained infertility, and used acupuncture approximately weekly for a year with my first pregnancy and again for my second pregnancy. Just a big thank you, again, for everything you did! I got pregnant within 3 months of treatment after 2.5 years of trying to conceive. I also felt better in general and experienced decreased pain (due to pregnancy) after each visit. Wouldn't hesitate to come back if I felt the need. The service and results were amazing! “

Looking for a different approach to managing your pain?

Read about the experiences that our patients have had with receiving Acupuncture for treating pain.

"I've had persistent/frequent migraines and sought Lily's help to see if acupuncture would be beneficial.
Lily's care is exceptional and she brings an intelligence to her work which is refreshing. Furthermore, she's a good listener, handles issues sensitively and always addresses the problem. I have every confidence that she always does her best. She never, ever stops trying to work out the best possible solution for her client. She is consistent. All my sessions have been delivered to the same high standard - nothing is overlooked. (I have received acupuncture from a number of other qualified professionals and found that this has not been the case).

I have ongoing acupuncture as it's been a very helpful treatment for migraine. For me, it won't prevent it - however, it will enable the client, I believe, to manage the problem much better and more effectively."

"I have had Acupuncture for at least 8 visits now and am now continuing for back pain management. Very helpful advice and was always treated with respect and confidentiality. I have always found Lily very easy to talk too and she always puts you at ease and explains what treatment she is giving you as she goes along."
